TechRaptor Podcast Episode 2

Twitch had its source code and much more leaked, prompting a discussion on the issues with Twitch as a platform; the greatest character to ever be made, Sora, is finally in Smash; and Turtle Rock Studios is making some weird decisions with Back 4 Bloods singleplayer. 

We also talk about games we’re playing: the gorgeous indie RPG Eastward, depressing capitalist living simulator New World, dark survival RTS Age of Darkness, whacky firefighting game Embr, Marvel’s Avengers on Game Pass, and some on Metroid Dread and the OLED Switch.

Also, yesterday was World Mental Health Day, and we talked some about our partnership with Safe in Our World.
